Bilawal Bhutto sees PPP's victory in transparent AJK election

The Pakistan People's Party (PPP) will clinch victory if free and fair elections are held in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto said on Friday.

Talking 24NewsHD TV Channel, he said that the PPP's election campaign is going very well. Aseefa Bhutto Zardari, Raja Pervaiz Ashraf and Yousaf Raza Gilani received warm welcome during electioneering, he said adding that such a response reflects PPP popularity and strength. "If elections are not manipulated, the PPP will sweep AJK polls," the chairman said.

He criticised the the PTI government and the major opposition party, PML-N for not playing their due roles. "The government of selected is a failure and the budget session exposed the PML-N, which did not play their due roles," he said.

The parties which raised the demand resignations from the assemblies, had not tendered resignations.  However, he stressed the need for unity among the political parties to get rid of of the 'selected' government 

Bilawal called government's foreign policy a failure, saying that Imran Khan's foreign policy has been failed over the matter of Kashmir, Afghanistan and Europe, leaving Pakistan in the lurch.

The American president did not even phoned Imran Khan and the latter should be ashamed of it, he rued. He said Pakistan should have been on the front but it has been seen far behind over Afghanistan issue.

However, he said his party won't let it go  continue. Islamabad's dictation on Kashmir is unacceptable, the PPP chairperson said adding that compromise on Kashmir is out of question.

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto gave importance to Kashmir and he raised voice for the people of Kashmir fighting for their right to self-determination at all forums across the world, he recalled.
